Arizona police confirm Kiera Bergman is body found outside of Phoenix, missing for a month

A body found outside Phoenix, Arizona has been identified as missing 19-year-old Kiera Bergman

The Phoenix Police Department released some details about the case, confirming that Bergman’s body was found near SR-85 and Hazen Road on Monday, September 3. The case is now considered an active homicide investigation.

No arrests have been made in connection to Kiera’s death.


As Dateline has previously reported, Kiera was last seen on August 4 at her Phoenix apartment building, about 45 minutes from where her body was found.

Shortly after Kiera’s disappearance, her mother Kiersten Bragg, who lives in San Diego, California, told NBC News she had been nervous about something happening to her daughter.


Kiera’s ex-boyfriend Jon-Christopher Clark, with whom she’d recently broken up, was the last person known to see Kiera.

In an Instagram post posted five days after Kiera was reported missing, Jon-Christopher said Kiera left the house on August 4 “because she was mad that [he] was contemplating going to live with [his] aunt in Texas.”

Police did not release details on how Bergman died or how long her body was in the desert.

An autopsy was to be performed by the medical examiner, police said.
